Recent studies have shown that more and more teen girls are seeking older men for dating.
This statement should not really be that surprising when one considers that age-gap dating, which was once mainly confined to older men seeking younger women, has seen a major upsurge in growth over the last 8-10 years—with both male and females now looking for older or younger partners, as the case may be.
As society has matured and awareness and tolerance levels increased, teen girls dating older men no longer has the same sort of stigma attached which it may have previously had.
Perhaps this is due, in part, to living in the “internet age” where instant communications are the norm and so much information is available at the touch of a few buttons. If dating older men is of interest to younger girls, it’s so much easier these days for teen girls to find out all they know to know about the phenomenon of such dating—and then take action to find a suitable older man.
On line dating sites such as AgeMatch.com, which specialises in bringing people to together to enjoy age-gap dating, caters for teen girls or other younger women looking to date older men.
Naturally, some of the advantages of on-line dating with a site such as AgeMatch.com are that it enables both teens and older men to be secure in the knowledge that others on the website are also looking for an “age-gap partner” and intend to get involved in such type of relationships. Sometimes with older men looking for teen girls there is a risk of misunderstanding or of taking a lot of time getting to know a potential partners through conventional means such as regular dating, dining or cinema visits, only to find that the young girls are not, in fact, looking for a serious relationship.
These specialised types of websites also free both teen girls and older men from any potential embarrassment and the general irritations and pitfalls of regular dating channels. In such cases, the extensive services offered on the website also means that older men don’t have to spend a lot of time sorting through the profiles of multitudes of teen girls who are not really serious about age-gap dating.
Another key reason for the growth in older men looking for teen girls is the fact that many young women these days do look much older than their true ages, presenting a more mature appearance and having more of a mature mindset than young girls even 10 years ago.
So, it looks like this subset of teen girls dating older men is here to stay!
Many people ask about the top 5 reasons older women dating younger men.
What is the appeal to the older woman, often well-to-do professionals, of age-gap dating when there are men of their own ages range around and available?
As one would expect, every older woman in a relationship with a younger man will have her own very personal reasons but, having undertaken a survey of our members, here is a summary of the top 5 reasons why older women dating younger men:
#1 younger men tend to be more physically appealing, often with well toned bodies, given the modern trends relating to keeping fit and taking care with grooming, skin care and the like; invariably, the younger man in such relationships with older women will be handsome and well presented
#2 older women find that dating a younger man who is up to date with current trends in fashion, modern technology and communications and so on, can also help them connect to the modern world—thereby allowing the older woman to rediscover her own youth
#3 younger men dating older women are likely to have more of a tendency to try to please; that is, when the spark has gone from a “same-age” relationship and an older woman finds a younger man who is prepared to do that little bit extra for her, be chivalrous and attentive, then the older women will, herself, begin to feel that she is “special”—and what women doesn’t appreciate being coveted?
#4 an older woman and a younger man may find that they have shared common interests, perhaps in enjoying sports such as tennis or ski-ing or other activities such as painting or amateur dramatics. It’s not unusual for a friendship between a younger man and older woman to develop into a more serious relationship once both parties find that they have more and more things in common
#5 for an older women dating a younger men, there is a sense of validation that she is still attractive enough and enable to attract her young “cougar”. If the older woman has been able and willing to retain her good looks and figure owing to a combination of diet and exercise, then there are many younger men out there who will value her relative maturity and worldly experience, rather than be with a younger women who may still be quite immature
Until relatively recently, it’s fair to say that relationships between older women and younger men have sometimes been questioned but, with overall attitudes in society continuing to soften, it’s becoming more common to see more of these types of age-gap relationships.
Have you ever wondered about the top 5 reasons older men dating younger women?
Just what is the appeal of age-gap dating to both younger women and older men?
Of course every older man in a relationship with a younger woman has his own personal reasons but, from a survey of our readers/members, here are the top 5 reasons why older men dating younger women:
#1 younger women usually have a spontaneity and exuberance which appeals to older men. The freshness and vitality of a younger woman may be just what an older man needs after, perhaps, spending much of the last, say, 10-15 years since graduation focussing on his career and working hard to get ahead—sometimes at the expense of his social life and existing relationship
#2 being with a younger woman often makes older men feel younger in themselves; many older men psychologically feel that they have a new “lease on life” once they start dating and commence a relationship with a younger woman. After all, men change dramatically from their early 20s to their late 30s/early 40s and, a relationship with a younger woman may be an excellent way to restore the older man’s own vitality for life
#3 younger women tend to have less relationship “baggage” such as an ex-boyfriend or even husband to contend with—and more likely than not, no children on the scene, leaving the new relationship with an older man free and clear of any encumbrances
#4 an older man and a younger woman often meet up as a result of having a common interest—perhaps in playing sports such as tennis or golf. Something which starts as a friendship because of their love of such activities can develop into a more serious relationship and the older man and younger women find that they have more and more things in common
#5 there are many cases where the older man and younger woman genuinely do enjoy each other’s company and the age-gap is easily, naturally bridged; the younger woman and older man may be in the same profession or have been through certain circumstances and experiences which lead them to empathise with each other and build a bond of trust and admiration—before the relationship further develops
As far as anyone can recall, older men have always been attracted to younger women, and with general society continuing to rapidly liberalise, it’s no longer unusual or out of the ordinary to see more and more of these type of relationships.
